Jan Rippingale's ambitions were never small. At an early age, Jan was looking first to be an astronaut, and then president. Ironically, working with John Glenn turned her ambitions away from this, and more towards using technology to create impact.
Her chosen area of impact was our escalating carbon footprint. And her solution was to develop software that reduces the cost and complexity of rolling out solar. Specifically, software that if deployed at scale has the proven potential to eliminate half a billion tons of carbon emissions per annum.
Some great lessons along the way. Some of my favourites:
An amazing origin story also of how it was a vision with her daughter that triggered and empowered her to change course and tackle one of the world's biggest problems.
Fantastic episode. Enjoy.
